CHARLOTTE, N.C. and RICHMOND, Va., Jan. 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- EastCoast Entertainment (ECE), a nationally recognized entertainment booking agency, today announced Kris Kaminski as a new partner. Kaminski rounds out a board of eight and is the first female named partner in the agency's 40 year history.
Based in Richmond, Virginia, Kaminski began her career at ECE in 1988 as a booking assistant and quickly worked her way into becoming a full-time agent. Throughout the 90's, she was instrumental in developing business strategies pertaining to the college markets. In the early 2000's, she transitioned to performing arts – a new market for the agency offering much potential. Since then, she has excelled in the performing arts market yet still manages to book some weddings and corporate events for longtime clients.
"I could not be more excited about having Kris as our newest partner. For many years, I have counted on her for advice and expertise in our industry and business. To now be able to welcome my colleague and friend into our ownership group is a huge step for EastCoast as our company leaps into its next chapter," states EastCoast Entertainment President and CEO, Doug Daniel.
When asked about her new partnership, Kaminski states, "It's an incredible honor. I've seen the company grow from 2 offices to 13 and I have enormous respect for the original partners of ECE. They've devoted their lives into building and growing this company. They are to be commended for having the foresight in creating a model for the continued growth and success of the agency as they near retirement by bringing in additional partners. The newer partners are exceptionally talented in their own right, so to be asked to join this team is quite humbling. I sincerely appreciate their belief in me and I'm excited about the future of the company."
